    The 2 carrage bolts that hold my belt cover guards on my Gravely 272 keep breaking off. I'd like to replace them with grade 5 or 8 bolts, but I need the threads to go the entire lenghth of the bolt. Any ideas?

    All thread ( 3 foot long) in the size and thread that you need, then use two nuts locked against each other or a single nut welded on. You can get it at most hardware store in grade 5 or Home Depot in what ever grade they sell.
